Surveillance video shows a mountain lion crossing a front yard of a home in San Jose's Alum Rock.
The video was recorded early Friday morning by resident Marlow Cortese. Video she recorded from the same motion-detection camera on the previous morning shows a deer walking the same path the mountain lion crossed on Friday.
"I was a little freaked out," Cortese said when she first saw the video. "My stomach got a little sick. I went, 'Oh my God. Right in my front yard.'"
Friday's sighting comes one day after a mountain lion visited a Palo Alto neighborhood, near three schools, prompting police to warn parents not to let their kids walk home from school.
Cortese, who has pets of her own, said she also plans to contact the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
No other information was immediately available.
